i - I EL PASO HERALD fc 1 Miss Force Would Punch Face of a Clergyman r MISS KATHE RIXE FORCE Says She Wishes She Were a Man Bishop " Calls" the Clergyman New York, N. T., Aug. 21. Miss Catherine Force says she -wishes she were "& man" to punish the critics of the Astor-Force union. Miss Force, 'who Is a sister of Madeleine Talmage Force, the fiancee of Col. John Jacob Astor, declares that the R&v. George Chalmers Bichmond's calling alona protects him from "other than legal action." Miss Force is the first mem ber of either family in the "unlon to come back at the Philadelphia minis ter who scores the "Astor-Force dis grace," as he calls it. The minister has been taken to task by his bishop, ReT. Alexader Mackay Smith. This is the way the bishop has written to Dr. Richmond: "In clearing up my papers prepara tory to leaving Philadelphia I find an other childish, kindergarten postcard from you, in which, like a nanghty lit tle boy who has Just been punished, you make a lace at me, not daring to do more. "1 make allowance for you in this matter, because I remember that you are the nephew of the person who, when I was a boy, was known as 'Crazy Richmond,' because he made himself a scandal In every community h& ever enterd. As the name indicated, he was generally regarded as Insane. "When you tried to -speak a fort night ago and were hissed down "by the clergy, with a violence and -unanimity that one would suppose would have made an j insane person blush, many of the clergy said after you had been silenced. 'The taint still runs in the blood. Any other man would have been overwhelmed by the universal disgust and dislike of all the brethren In the room, but you did nof seem to fake It home to you at all. "Everybody Hates You." "This feeling that you are not quite right in the upper story is now gen eraly believed by the clergy in Phila delphia. I do not say whether they are right or wrong, but things have gone so far now that everybody hates you and you hate everybody. I do not as your bishop reprove you as people are all the while telling me I should do, for I have known that you had long ago gotten beyond the point where you have any reverence or obedience for any reproof, human or divine, "but there must be some ex planation of your attitude. "I have had 35 years experience in the clergy and T never met anybody like you. The general convention not long ago withdrew my power to pun ish you for mere Impudence. Such vanity as yours may have its equal, but I never heard of it. They did this on the ground that no such person like you existed in the ministry. Men like you only appear once In a gen eration, and if I live till the next con vention I shall have the canon restored (as it is In the army and navy) which prevents outrageous insolence from having a clear field for all kinds of Insults. The only reason I let you off now is to avoid the horrible scandal which would ensue as soon as the church learned your career." BIsfeop Refused "to See Him. Dr. Richmond explains that, after getting the letters from bishop Mac-kay-Smith, he vainly sought an inter view with the prelate. "But the bishop would not see me," said the rector. "He wrote letters and then refused to meet me face to face. At last, despairing of securing the justice of a retraction, I decided to make public one of the letters. , "There is no doubt that the bishop is fully aware that be has made a grievous error. He has made repeated overtures to me for an 'exchange of letters.' He is anxious to get back the llf-advised and undignified letters he has written, but not yet." THE MINISTERS OF THREE NATION E READY TO PUSH PE AGE WORK North American Catholics to Help Promote Church Work in South America- New Episcopal Bishop on South's Problem Presbyterians Push Aggressive Campaigns North and South ) : Ministers of Great Britain, Germany and, the United States, who are close ly organised, and. some in France who keep in touch with the government, foresaw last spring the possible atti tude of the United States senate -toward the world peace treaties and laid plan accordingly. It was an English man, the Rev. F. B. Mayer, endorsed in his position by ambassador Bryce, who warned' American clergymen while here thai the senate would see in the treaties abridgment of its own consti tutional privileges. He went farther and said certain .members would be governed, not by jealousy for the sen ate, but by influence of manufacturers and others whose interests demand the continuation of war, Ts help president T&f t and secretary Knox in getting treaties through, com mittees of about a dozen religious or ganizations la the United States are ready to amalgamate into one big movement. English clergymen are keeping oat now, but will do what they can later on, American clergymen lead ing. German clergy come in by the way of a council that is federated with the British. If the senate puts the treaties over until December, and shows unwilHogness to confirm, a big campaign of clergymen and foremost Christian laymen will be formed and work for the treaties in earnest Everything is n readiness. NORTH IS TO HELP SOUTH AMERICA TS RELIGIOUS "WORK . Just before lie fell ill Pope Plus X dispatched Father GennochI, long one of the most active of the learned com mission on the translation and re vision of the bible, to Rio de Janeiro, charged to study conditions of the Catholic church in South America and make a report to him. Father Gennochi had spent seven years among Moham medans in Arabia and Afghanistan, and three among cannibal tribes in New Guinea before taking up bible sommtesion work in Home. Pope Pius X. had also appealed to the Rev. Dr. Charles P. Grannan, of ihe Catholic university at "Washington, also a member of the same bible com mission, to enlist if possible the char itable Catholics of the United States to help the Roman college of Latin America, located in Rome and in dan ger of closing unless larger financial support be assured it. In his appeal to the Rev. Dr. Grannan, which the pope makes direct, he states that noth ing is to be expected in financial help from Latin American Catholics, and yet he says that in Rome and at this college must be trained the leaders for :outh America and the West Indies, whch the church there stands in no much need Cardinal Albuquerque, the one mem ber of the Sacred College in South America as cardinal Gibbons Is the one In North America, Is archbishop of Rio de Janc'ro, and to him, in his letter commending father Gennochi to South American prelates, Pope Pius X. appre ciates the poverty of the church in what he calls the "neglected contin ent," deplores the poverty of the holy see itself In being unable to provide missionaries for the many unoccupied fields in 3razll, Bolivia, Argentina and Peru particularly, and urges Catholic leaders of South America in general to foster In all cities Catholic weekly newspapers after the manner of Cath olic prelates in the United States. The pope praises the press as a religious educator when rightly edited, and ap peals to the clergy to undertake through it larger things for the church. THE STUDENT "VOLUNTEERS BIG TEAR OF DEVELOPMENT The Student "Volunteer movement, whose report is just out, furnished to missionary societies last year, for serv ice on foreign fields, 368 men and women, who went out under 53 differ ent societies. Up to the beginning of -the calendar year the volunteers had furnished 4784 missionaries to all fields. That is the record for 25 years. Getting students in American colleges to form study classes in missions is one way adopted by the Volunteers to spread interest in foreign missions, and secure recruits for fields.

Getting istudents In col leges to give money, and Inducing their friends to give through them, is also a method employed under stimulation of the Volunteers. Last year students In American col leges, and their friends acting under their influence, contributed $133,700 to foreign fields.

BISHOP-ELECT' WINCHESTER OX SOUTH AND ITS PROBLEMS The Hev. T. J. R- "Winchester, for some years rector of Calvary, the larg est Episcopal church in Memphis, but to be consecrated bishop coadjutor of Arkansas on September 29 next, re ported -while In New York the other day upon three lines of religious work in the middle west and south as he saw them. Concerning the negro and his problem, he believes, he said, that industrial education is making sub stantial headway, and that in time It will solve the negro problem in America, if it have Christianity and white man's sympathy along with It. He spoke, he said, as a long time friend of the negro as he is in the south. Speaking of his work in Arkansas, he said educational conditions there are better than he had been led to sup pose before ne looked into them fol lowing his election. His consecration takes place in Little Rock cathedral, and he announces his policy as bishop to trust laymen and put as large bur dens upon them as he can induce them to bear. PRESBYTERIANS STAY APART, BUT WORK HARD FOR MEMBERS. Presbyterian zeal for numbers over comes weather, and by arrangement made by mall last spring, there have just been held several informal con ferences at as many resorts this sum mer concerning union between the large Presbyterian bodies north and south. The Initiative in these confer ences was taken by the northern men, but In all cases they were met In a cordial spirit by the southern men. It was found that the question of the negro played little part, and that the prospect of one Presbyterian body, na tional In its constituency and having a membership of 1,700,000 was most at tractive. v From one of the southern conferees, pastor of one of the largest congrega tions In a Mississippi valley state, it is learned that the northerners were told plainly that separation of north and south must continue until heresy cases in the New York Presbytery, tr even the appearance of such cases, come to an end. Particularly severe were the southerners upon the teach ings of Union Seminary, New York, and the questions and answers admit edly given by students of that Institu tion In the Presbytery of New York. Until such answers cease to be given, the southerners are reported to have said, union of Presbyterians north and south Is Impossible.
